eXact

Spectrophotometer

Offered in both Standard and Advanced models, the eXact combines industry-leading functionality with an easy-to-use interface to deliver the best solution for controlling, managing, and communicating color across the entire color workflow.

Setting the Standard for Color Management

The eXact spectrophotometer is offered in two configurations: Standard and Advanced. The eXact Standard is for press operators who want to ensure accurate printing of both CMYK and spot colors. The eXact Advanced model was designed for ink labs and quality control labs to provide enhanced functionality of quality control features, sample measurements, and the capability to store different user profiles.

The eXact is a unique combination of hardware and software programming to help operations get color right the first time – every time.

Benefits:

  • Best in Spot Color Support
    Fully integrated Pantone spectral data, support of the PantoneLIVE color digital workflow, and ink key adjustment recommendations for spot colors and CMYK.
  • Accurate and Consistent
    The advanced spectral engine and integrated white calibration ensures the highest accuracy and consistency with other instruments – all the time. Pair with NetProfiler to ensure accuracy and consistency across multiple measurement devices within a single facility or across geographies.
  • Configurable
    eXact allows the user to easily configure and control the instrument to the specific standards of a selected job.
  • Efficient
    Both the eXact Standard and Advanced are designed and engineered to bring efficiency to your operation with the ability to do simultaneous polarized and unpolarized measurements (M0, M2 and M3).
  • Expandable
    With a comprehensive portfolio of products, the eXact family integrates with many of X-Rite solutions to ensure true color consistency across the entire workflow.
